Dan DeCarlo’s Jetta

Another day, another great book from Craig Yoe. His latest is a collection of Dan DeCarlo’s futuristic teenage comic books from 1952, Jetta. As usual with Yoe’s books for IDW, the production (and comics reproduction) is superb. He reprints the three hard-to-find Jetta issues in their entirety, as well as a selection of other rare DeCarlo good-girl art — and an art gallery of 37 tribute pin-ups by contemporary “good-girl” artisans, including many animation artists such as Dean Yeagle, Craig McCracken, Jenny Lerew, Bill Pressing, Katie Rice, Stephen Silver, Stephanie Gladden, Tracy Mark Lee, Kali Fontecchio and many others including our friends Bill Morrison (from Bongo Comics, above), Leslie Cabarga (The Fleischer Story) and Mark Frauenfelder (of Boing Boing).

Another magnificent package. Highly recommended and only $14.95 on Amazon.

    So does this have a lot of future schtick that got recycled on the Jetsons?

  • top cat james

    No worries, booksteve. I’ve got both “Jetta” and GTOKKKK on backorder at my local comics shop. I’ll just have to take a vacation so I can have time to pore over these incredible books.

    Looks real good- for some reason I’d pictured a sort of a rinky-dink
    paperback. Not the case! Great production values and design-
    A STEAL AT $14.95!
